Sony 2022 BRAVIA XR 4K and 8K TV Lineup

I recently posted an article featuring Sony’s 2022 mini LED displays which can be seen here. The aforementioned article only featured two models from their 2022 lineup. The post you’re ready now covers Sony’s complete 2020 BRAVIA XR lineup.

These new displays will include the MASTER Series Z9K 8K and X95K 4K Mini LED models, the MASTER Series A95K, MASTER Series A90K, A80K, and A75K 4K OLED models, followed by the X90K 4K LED model. I will cover each model below.

But first, the following info in italics is from Sony’s website and highlights certain features for their 2022 XR TV lineup:

Powered by Cognitive Processor XR, the unique XR Backlight Master Drive precisely controls our latest generation Mini LED backlight in the Z9K and X95K series for incredible brightness. Enjoy an unprecedented dynamic range with incredibly dazzling lights and deep blacks, as well as beautifully natural mid-tones with almost no flare or halos around highlights.

The Cognitive Processor XR also powers our A95K’s new OLED (QD-OLED) panel with XR Triluminos Max, which delivers our widest color palette and reproduces naturally beautiful shades and hues. With millions of individual, self-illuminating pixels, the A95K delivers more colors than ever before for an entirely new viewing experience.

These new innovations help us deliver the best and most immersive viewing experiences, authentically delivering the creator’s true intent. When watching movies, viewers can experience our enhanced Acoustic Surface Audio+ for OLED models and Acoustic Multi-Audio for LED models, precisely matching the position of the sound with the images on the screen for a truly immersive audio/visual experience.

The lineup also includes new features that customize and enhance at-home entertainment. Together with Netflix, we’ve released Netflix Adaptive Calibrated Mode, which automatically adjusts image processing based on ambient light, so users’ favorite shows and films look like the creator intended, under any conditions.

Additionally, Sony’s new BRAVIA CORE Calibrated Mode will automatically adjust the image quality on-screen to better align with the filmmaker’s original vision. All 2022 BRAVIA XR televisions will also be designated ‘Perfect for PlayStation 5’, which includes two PS5 exclusive features – Auto HDR Tone Mapping and Auto Genre Picture Mode.
